SOURSOP Annona muricata

SoursopThe Soursop is native to the nothern parts of South America. In its tropical conditions it grows vigorously and seedling trees will fruit within 2-3 years. In the subtropics it requires substantial protection from cold winds and will not tolerate frosts. The tree prefers deep well drained semi-dry soil.

The fruit is heart-shaped with a rough green skin and soft fleshy spines. The fresh meaty flesh is juicy and slightly acid producing a rich creamy thirst quenching juice. Superb when fruit is pureed with 1/3 of vanilla icecream. The fruit can also be dried into a sweet fruit leather. Grafted varieties have the least acid flavour and least fibrous consistency. Immature soursops are cooked as vegetables, used in soup or roasted.

The leaves of the soursop are said to have many medicinal qualities see http://www.graviola.org/

Soursop Mountain

Also known as Wild Soursop, the fruit has lemon coloured smooth flesh. The fruit is round, with a pale green/yellow skin when ripe. Quality is inferior to the common Soursop, but its hardiness makes it useful as a rootstock and in colder regions. The skin is less spiky than that of the soursop. Much hardier than soursop tolerating temperatures down to -2 degrees, dry conditions and a wild range of soils. Will grown in full sun or part shade. Trees can reach up to 8m and seedling trees often produce fruit after just 2-3
